Bike Swap & Ride

Bike Swap & Ride

May 16 marks the end of “Bike to Work Week.” Come celebrate with us at our second annual Bike Swap & Ride!

Bring your bike gears, bikes, seats and more to sell/haggle/swap with others!

There will be an area for people to sell completed bikes that they want to get rid of/upgrade, and bike shops/vendors will be here peddling their wares, too. (Get it? Peddling? It’s a pun!). Individuals are also welcome to set up a table and sell their extra/leftover gear (or, you know… stuff that “has to be out of the garage by the end of the month).

The swap itself will run from 9am-12pm with a ride to Ely and back to follow. Register in advance for the ride to get event freebies. See you there!
